President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said the State is keen on cleaning up lakes.
During the inauguration of several projects in Damietta on Tuesday 3/12/2019, he said this is a chance to talk about Lake Manzala which shrank to 250,000 feddans due to misuse and transgressions.
The President said had this lake been left without development for the past four or six years, the situation would have been much worse.
He noted that had it been left untreated, fish coming from the lake could have affected people's health.
